What happened to this Commander? Doesn't look like a commander at all.

It's a 42, that is what most 42's look like. Totally has the commander styling, just the cockpit is different than the other models.

1968 42 DC ONLY $ 4.000, THIS IS AMAZING, REALLY AMAZING. NO MATTER WHAT HER CONDITION IS, THIS IS A STEAL. 

I love 42 DC especially the ones with the soft top, they have the greatest design 

I feel for the guy, the boat is a restorer, Look at the toerail , nice and thick. Wonder if he had the stanchion bases rechromed? Egemen you must be drooling, ship her to my shop in Florida and 200K and Ill redo her!!

Here again us baby boomers who grew up fixing things are aging out and the Millennials cant change a light bulb. Times have certainly changed

Byron drooling is not enough to describe how i feel, but there is a serious economical crisis here i am not sure if you heard of it. Everyone is struggling to keep what they have, and it is not different for me too. I guess I will never have a chance to own a 42 DC unless things does not change here. But its so sad to see such a good boat at that condition. I hope someone with enough funds will buy and take back to her glorious days. 

just out of curiosity dr. google says its 1311 miles from FT. Louderdale, can you guess to transport her to there.

I think they actually look pretty similar to a 31 Scaled up. Would be a great livaboard.  

Look up the 42' Commanders on this site.  Some of the prettiest Commanders ever made.  It will also show you what that boat is missing.  Remember, in restoration, every foot is a lot of work.  I may be a little prejudiced!

42' Commander "Valhalla"

Chris, you said you were looking for a live aboard with character. I would check this one out. Might not be diesels, but it can,t hurt to look. The price is right. How far is this boat from you?

I don't. He has to sell "due to a family emergency" but will trade for a hot rod? Must not be that big of an emergency.

It's about 5 hours North of usin Dallas.

We've actually moved aboard last week. We leased a friend of ours 1996 Mainship 37 Motor Yacht until next spring to see how we like living aboard. This gives her a chance to make a little money on a boat she wasn't using, and gives us the opportunity to try out the lifestyle without committing to serious amounts of debt. 

So far it's touch and go. We aren't sure if we are liveaboard people, or if we are "condo on the water with a boat slip and weekend trawler" type people yet. 

This is the boat we are currently living on.

Know this boat very well. Know the owner. It’s on Lake Lewisville. He’s halfway restored this boat.
